Each household will receive one 95 gallon garbage collection container (referred to as a "cart").
Free of Charge
The carts are City property and are assigned to the household using an individual serial number that corresponds to
the address using a digital scanner. The cart is an industry standard grade container with wheels, a lid and a handle.
The cart can ONLY be used for garbage and can ONLY be emptied by an automated mechanism and are the ONLY containers
that can be used to place garbage at the curb. One additional container per household can be rented for a one time
fee of $60 or less, depending on market costs and inventory.

Styrofoam™ - drink cups & fast food containers - should be discarded in the garbage- not recycling.
Bulk waste or trash collection days, which includes old furniture, yard waste, home improvement by-products,
attic contents, shrubbery, toys and games, BBQ grills, and appliances - are scheduled for EACH DISTRICT (4)
times this year. Separate trucks collect metals, air conditioners and refrigerators. We cannot collect whole
pallets, truck tires, oil based paint, oil or concrete – asphalt – cinder blocks etc… Typical household
garbage will not be collected on Trash Day, follow your regular pick up schedule. Please make note and adhere
to your scheduled trash day.
DPW Schedules will change only on weeks where holidays fall, and in the event of a severe natural weather
occurrence such as a snowstorm or hurricane, when services may be delayed or canceled. All sanitation items
must be placed at the curb by 6 am on your scheduled pick-up day. Please refer to your District for DPW pick-up
Outsiders are not allowed to bring in trash from out of town. We pay hefty fees to dump our trash and ultimately we, the
taxpayers shoulder the expense of outside trash. If you see anyone bringing trash from out of town, we urge you to call
this department. All calls will be handled discretely and remain totally confidential.
If you are moving, you must call this department BEFORE PLACING any trash at the curb and if our schedule permits, we will
issue to you a special CONFIRMED trash pickup. – THIS SERVICE MAY CARRY A FEE.
REMOVE stands and decorations before disposal.
On the grass clippings from lawn mowing will be accepted. Place in a sturdy container labeled GRASS or in biodegradable
paper bags. DO NOT mix in bushes, branches, rocks, dirt or other yard waste with grass clippings and DO NOT PUT GRASS IN
PLASTIC BAGS. WE WILL NOT COLLECT GRASS IN PLASTIC BAGS. Grass can never be piled in the curb line.
Place leaves in sturdy containers or biodegradable paper bags. LEAVES IN PLASTIC BAGS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED. Do not mix
in yard waste with leaves.
